MARS presents "Opus", a solo show by Valentina Palazzari, curated by Fabio Carnaghi. The exhibition is the fourth in a series of special projects entitled “My Room On Mars” that will present new points of view of MARS as anomalous white cube.
The Valentina Palazzari’s artistic practice emerges from the physicalization of the action on the matter. A matter malleable and strong at the same time: materials from the building site, as welded wire mesh, iron’s structures, in other words modular elements, conceived to be invisibles in the concrete.
In the site-specific project for Mars, Valentina Palazzari restructures the space backwards: the modular-geometrical fragmentation is a method between architecture and archaeology. Opus is a temporal landscape, based on the livest survival.
